Help!
18-20 amp speed control problem

Hey guys not long ago I built a 70cm delta wing ill attach a video of it flying with a 2s
and I bought a 3s because it was a little under powered now it is perfect but when I accelerate half throttle is full throttle and when I move the stick past half throttle the thrust doesn't change (I kind of want to fly low and slow inverted but this esc problem isn't allowing me)and ive messed around with it for a while but I was just wondering if my esc is damaged or I'm just not doing something right please help!!!

Thanks in advance Ben

It's possible you need to reset the full throttle recognition. Try this: turn on the tx; set throttle at full/wide open throttle; plug in the battery to the plane, listening for the beeps; at the first sound immediately pull throttle stick back to zero. Now check throttle to see if it gives full range. That's the way some ESC's learn what a full throttle signal looks like.

Try a little smaller prop on 3S. Also you may be able to change the timing on the ESC. Which one are you using?? Good video. Great job of missing the horse buns.

A very nice maiden (my first response was from the phone, where I can't typically view vids, so didn't see it before suggesting the esc fix) So it was the max throttle reset? Cool if it was, as that's an easy fix.
